Dear Mr. Carlson, At to your grandfather's service in WW 2, may I suggest that you attempt to obtain his personnel file.Please send your letter-of-request to:
Military Personnel Records Center 9700 Page Avenue St. LouisMO63132
There was a fire at that location in July 1973 that destroyed approximately 85% of all personnel files.Regardless, I suggest you send the letter-of-request, someone has to be in the LUCKY 15%. Next, I suggest you refer to your grandfather's Discharge Documents.Those your family have in its possession, so they are readily available.Please refer to Box #6 on page two of the four page document.Box #6 will at least provide you with the unit your grandfather was assigned to when he returned home.It may also be the unit your grandfather was assigned to prior to V-E Day, May 8, 1945. Good Luck with your quest.
